“Advice books for writers are a dime a dozen but Moore provides a fresh approach … A compact book of practical and philosophical truths for both novice and veteran writers.” ~ Publishers Weekly
“I’ve read a hundred writing books, but this one is fresh.” —Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia
Going a step beyond typical “how to write” books, The Mindful Writer: Noble Truths of the Writing Life illuminates the creative process: where writing and creativity originate, how mindfulness plays into work, how to cultivate good writing habits, how to grow as a writer — and a person! — and what it means to have a life dedicated to the craft of writing.
“The Mindful Writer is small but powerful; it will be a welcome addition to many writers’ desks, and an inspiring and supportive gift for those who have just set foot on the path.” ~ ForeWord Reviews
“The Mindful Writer tells us to pack up our egos, listen to the quieter churning of our minds, and to be present and open to the world and our place in it. There hasn’t been a writing book this influential, this motivational, since Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones.” – Ira Sukrungruang, author of Talk Thai: The Adventures of Buddhist Boy
“Moore condenses an entire library of writing advice into sixty deft lessons. I will urge this wise, kind, slender volume on all of my students.” —Heather Sellers, author of The Practice of Creative Writing
